Book Exploration

April Barrett 

From the back matter: Words of Praise from Elizabeth Kugler-Ross.

Maintaining that dreams prepare people for death and afterlife and that traditional religions have ignored dreams on death, Marie-Louise von Franz discusses the symbolism of death in dreams. She also compares death dreams to accounts of near-death experiences.  The earlier editions reproduce the following from Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in the back matter.  It begins:  Marie Louise von Franz has to be congratulated on a true masterpiece on research and interpretation of dreams by patients prior to a sudden or anticipated death.  The common denominator does not seem to be simply an end of earthly existence, but transformation into a continuation of another form of life.

April Barrett is in service to the dissemination of Jung's thought through her participation and training with the Creative Initiative Foundation, the Guild for Psychological Studies, and the Jung Society of Washington, for which she is program co-director and secretary/treasurer of the board.
